    FANTASTIC!

    Very Classy. I understand the hat and its crown and reverse taper. I like that style and I always admire it on men I see such hats on in old photos. Your suit and its tailoring are appropriate for the era of the hat style.

    Disregard the negative comments, Haters gotta hate.

    I see many things considered stylish by many on this site that I would not wear on my worst day. I have no use for knit ties and think any tie tied in a 4 in hand looks like you really don't give a shit about your appearance. BUT that is my opinion and other in the the context of the message of my post I would not say such things. I do not consider how anyone should dress to be a uniform unless they are in the military or a police force where uniform is exactly what they want. Choose your style and wear it like you own it. Don't do it for others, do it for yourself. Maybe others will admire you.
    Tibor has chosen a retro style and pulls it off so well. I certainly admire him and hope he continues to ROCK his style like he has been doing for some time.

    A man who understands my love of high crown "reverse taper" hats is a man who I consider extended family. This post makes me so thankful. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.

    It needs to be refolded as one almost constantly has to do with silk squares. I like the colors, but more importantly I think Butler's fits are quite often more than the sum of their parts: The man looks great and it seems useless to discuss a single detail. But then again I'm a fan and thus biased perhaps.

    I really like Styleforum, I find it slightly educational and highly entertaining. I don't really think much of the constructive/negative comments about my hats, because we clearly have a drastically different comprehension of elegance. However I have learned to fine tune many other aspects such as my suits and shirts, due thankfully to Styleforum. I am personally not a fan of 4 in Hand too. I think it usually looks quite sloppy, but my taste is not for everyone. I think some people on SF don't understand reverse taper crowns. I love them, it is the most natural crown style for me, so I wear it. Many SF style quirks are far from my taste but I accept them for what they are. There is room for all kinds of styles so long as it is worn naturally with conviction. I think clothes should be a physical manifestation for one's principals and/or values. I use to take the "costume-y" comments as really condescending and highly insulting. Now I take it with a grain of salt. So now Styleforum becomes more and more enjoyable to be a member of. :)

    The hat makes the man. It increase your impact 100 %. A man without a hat is half naked.

    There might be a reasons not to prefer a four-in-hand knot but I don't think sloppiness could possibly be one of them. It's simple and unobtrusive.

    Any knot can look sloppy if it isn't tightened to the collar.

    I have seen some men wear the 4 in hand with great charm. I personally think the Half Windsor is the most elegant. If the tie is unlined and/or very light silk I find a Full Windsor to be quite dashing.

    Well, unless Butler is pulling our leg it's he who is color blind. But he has track record to prove that he is not. Thus, we are discussing a matter of taste and preference in color and when it comes to squares there's a lot of leeway.

    No, it ain't. It's pretty much perfect as one has come to expect from Butler.[/quote]







    Well Gentelmen, here is the heinous Rubinacci monstrosity in all its glory for your further dissection :bigstar:
